I have time to watch the cats making poo and it's hilarious. They know that if Miss Poop-Scoop saw the situation, they don't need to bother digging it up.

68. We now know that the NHS was nowhere near collapse before corona. Their funding was always fine

69. We can get rid of nearly 50,000 NHS managers at least, the ones who couldn't organize PPE

70. It only takes about six weeks to save the climate, so no need to rush

Telegraph-speak?
Say that to the Philipino nurses who account for 20% of deaths but make up 0.2% of the population. Give them proper PPE.

And nursing homes have been ignored. 50% of deaths are here.

It's better not to try. It will turn kids off maths for life.

Only the non-stiff scalar linear ones. I'm not kidding, I have evidence from 5 continents. 
Just look at undergrad online ODE stuff.

I’ve learned that nail varnish remover can be used to glue Lego together.

Some might say it’s cruel. I say it’s a valuable life lesson.

Don’t judge me.

'The favour is returned': 173 years on, Irish donors thank Native Americans

https://www.rte.ie/news/coronavirus/2020/0505/1136566-choctaw-nation-navajo-hopi-covid19-coronavirus/

People from Ireland have been sending money through a 'GoFundMe' page set up to help Navajo and Hopi families, with many of the Irish donors saying it was a way of saying thank you for the support shown to Ireland during the Great Famine.

In 1847, the Choctaw Native American people sent $170 of relief aid to Ireland, the equivalent of around $5,000 today.

P.S. and when there is any doubt between the Bible and hard facts, quite a number of 'scientists' will choose the former.
Lots of precedent down through history. 
What's the point? 68% of GOP and 40% of Democrats don't believe in evolution.

and for DUP (comrades of Boris) is even higher

DUP assembly member Thomas Buchanan has previously called for creationism to be taught in schools. In 2016, he voiced support for an evangelical Christian programme that offers “helpful practical advice on how to counter evolutionary teaching”. He has expressed a desire to see every school in Northern Ireland teaching creationism, describing evolution as a “peddled lie”.

Buchanan told the Irish News “I’m someone who believes in creationism and that the world was spoken into existence in six days by His power,” adding that children had been “corrupted by the teaching of evolution”.
